Negroni Sbagliato



At New Year, we were considering what fizzy cocktails to start the evening with and settled on the Negroni Sbagliato. It’s so easy to make… but perhaps not as easy to imbibe. Which is to say that, in our opinion, this is a seriously grown-up drink. It’s lighter in body than a traditional negroni and the fizz is gently pleasant, however the absence of gin seems to make this version feel much more bitter. The sweetness of the Prosecco Superiore does come through a touch (here we’ve used a Nino Franco Brut which is a drier prosecco) but the beauty of this drink is that the wine really does complement the botanicals in the spirits. The bonus, of course, is that it’s a sparkling cocktail that isn’t sweet or citrus so makes a nice change from the norm! Cin cin!


1 part Campari
1 part Martini Rosso
2 parts Prosecco Superiore
Wedge of orange to garnish

Mix the Campari and Martini Rosso in a mixing glass of ice.
